Vertebral Subluxation

Vertebral Subluxation happens when spinal nerves which are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine become irritated. The pressure on the nerves interferes with the signals traveling over those nerves.In the Vertebral Subluxation Complex or VSC, various changes happen inside your body. These are different components that are grouped in five categories:

The osseous (bone) component is where the vertebrae are either out of position, not moving properly (restricted), or are undergoing physical changes such as degeneration. This component is sometimes known as kinesiopathology.

The Nerve Component is the malfunctioning of the nerve. Research has shown that only a small amount of pressure on spinal nerves can have a profound impact on the function of the nerves. This component is scientifically known as neuropathology.

The Muscle Component is also very important. Since muscles help hold the vertebrae in place, and since nerves control the muscles themselves, muscles are an integral part of any VSC. In fact, muscles both affect, and are affected by the VSC. This component is known as myopathology.

The Soft Tissue Component is when misaligned vertebrae and pressure on nerves results in changes in the surrounding soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, blood supply, muscles and other tissues. These changes can occur at the point of the VSC or far away at some end point of the affected nerves. This component is also known as histopathology.

The Chemical Component is when all these components of the VSC are acting on your body, and therefore causing some degree of chemical changes. These chemical changes can be slight or massive depending on what parts of your body are affected by your subluxations. This component is often known as biochemical abnormalities.

Today, scientific evidence is showing the dangers of subluxations and the health benefits of correcting them. To be healthy, it is vital that your nervous system be functioning free of interference from subluxations. Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained in the detection, location, and correction of the VSC.

Your nervous system controls and coordinates all functions of your body. This means that when there is subluxation, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function optimally. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly.

Correcting nerve interference is done through chiropractic adjustments and techniques specifically designed to correct the vertebral subluxations in your spine.
